Offering a new way to #SeeTheWorld with eyewear designed for life on and off the bike. SCICON has implemented its passion for innovation to establish an original range of eyewear, featuring high performance technology and effortless style.
Through collaborating with Essilor® Sun Solution™, utilising their expertise in design and manufacturing of high performance vision accessories, SCICON has produced technical eyewear which features photochromic NXT® lenses to cope with the full spectrum of lighting conditions while riding.
Created for those with an active lifestyle, our Performance and Sport Lifestyle models provide a range of options to ensure you have the optimum fit and comfort. The performance range comprises two distinct models, The Aerotech and Aerocomfort, each available in standard or XL lens sizes. With the former featuring a single interchangeable SCN-XT photochromic lens in comparison to the latter’s two interchangeable lenses.
Introducing the Aerotech and Aerocomfort
Made entirely in Italy, SCICON continues its reputation as a market leader of cycling products which meet the standards of those purchasing Italian goods, expecting only the best from cycling’s heartland. SCICON’s Marketing Strategist and eyewear specialist, Claudio Fantin, said of the collection – “Having spent over 20 years in the sports eyewear sector working with world-class athletes, I’ve learnt every small detail of the production and development process of these products. This experience meant that when SCICON decided to enter this world, working with Essilor® Sun Solution™ NXT® lenses was our priority and we are proud to collaborate with them.”
With the intention of only wishing to create eyewear which would embody SCICON’s ethos for innovation and performance, partnering with Essilor® Sun Solution™ was a fundamental aspect in the realisation of these ambitions. Christophe Mayet, Marketing VP of Essilor® Sun Solution™, added: “We analyzed the SCICON proposal and immediately realized that they have everything they need to be able to obtain important results in the sports sunglasses market. Their search for details and pursuit of finding the perfect visual solution finds us in tune and we are looking forward to developing new vision solutions together.”
The choice of materials available to SCICON has resulted in the creation of two performance focused pieces of eyewear, providing optimal protection and clarity, which are highly adjustable and customisable with Grilamid TR90 frames to complete a high performance package. ASG’s Power Ergo Design, now synonymous with performance SCICON products, places innovative ergonomics at the fore with Flexi Fit temple and three varieties of interchangeable double click nose pads ensuring the perfect fit for every face. Pair this with two interchangeable fenders, either sprint or regular, for an additional safety close and the result is 30 ergonomic options in one set of sunglasses. And that’s before looking at customisation or additional lens options.
SCICON’s initial range of eyewear also features lifestyle options in the way of Cover, Protector and Phantom; available in three lens options and three frame options. Each utilise the technical Grilamid TR90 frame material as their performance counterparts and zero distortion flat lenses which offer 100% UV protection for sunny days off the bike.
